A former deputy coroner in Franklin County testifies today that a woman who was shot to death more than two years ago, had sedative medicine in her system before she died.

Dana Crutchfield took the stand this morning in the murder trial of Tashia Stuart.

Stuart is accused of shooting her adoptive mother Judy Hebert to death inside Hebert's home in March 2011.

Crutchfield said Hebert also had alcohol in her system.

Testimony is expected to continue next week.
